Las Piñas City Mayor Imelda Aguilar ordered the police on Friday to intensify its 24 hour patrol in the city due to a spike of COVID-19 cases in its nearby cities, according to a report by Manila Bulletin.

Aguilar ordered the local police under the leadership of Col. Rodel Pastor to deploy more policemen in all establishments in the city after noticing that some were closing at 12 midnight and no longer observing the curfew hour.

She added the city government noticed that some establishments were already relaxed and no longer observing health protocols such as the mandatory wearing of face mask and face shield, filling out contract tracing forms, and observing physical distancing inside their premises.

The mayor said that not only establishments around the city will be checked by the police but also eateries, fast food chains, and sari-sari stores.

Aguilar said that a show cause order or suspension of permits will be issued to violators.

She said the city government is conducting weekly meetings with the doctor at the City Health Office (CHO), including department heads, in preparation for the citywide vaccination and to determine whether there is already an increase of COVID-19 cases in the city.

On Monday, Feb. 22, the OCTA Research Team reported that Las Pinas was among the local government units with moderate increase of the cases.

Aguilar said the CHO reported that transmission of the disease was within the households. Residents who were found positive were immediately brought at the Ligtas Center for treatment to avoid transmission.

As of Feb. 22, CHO said the city has a total of 98 positive cases and they are continuing to conduct swab testing to individuals reported with close contacts to those who were found positive with the disease.
